DN: What are some of the questions do you hope people will be asking each other after they’ve seen this film?

MG: A couple things. One is, “Are you satisfied with the way your children are being educated?” And then — because basically it’s always going to be a class issue on some level, some people who are going to be able to pay to educate their kids, or they’re going to be able to live in districts that are much better funded — the question after that is, “Are you satisfied with the way that most children in America are being educated, and what could you do about it even if you’re okay with the way your kid is being educated? What kind of responsibility do you feel like you have to change it?”
